Guelph, Ont., September 28, 2016 – Join Guelph artist Glynis Logue as she unveils her collaborative art piece titled Creature Currents this Saturday, October 1 at 10 a.m. outside the front entrance of the Guelph Farmers’ Market.
Logue, this year’s RBC Market Mornings artist, worked with the public over the past four Saturdays to create the larger-than-life sculptural insect landscape. The art piece, designed to be set in motion by passersby and the wind, brings attention to the impact that unpredictable weather conditions have on the migration of moths and other insects.
As part of the project, market-goers were asked to choose from a selection of printed images depicting nature and the various airborne and wind propelled insects. The images were then transferred onto pieces of repurposed aluminum and local ash wood before being assembled. Logue worked with the City’s Parks Operations and Forestry division to source materials for the project.
This is the third year RBC Royal Bank has sponsored the Market Mornings program, which features artist-led free outdoor art-making activities for the community.
The interactive installation will be on display throughout the fall at the corner of Gordon and Wilson streets.
